series of "Distortions" photographs during the early 1930s. Anonymus (Anonymus Belæ Regis Notarius), the notary of King Béla III (Béla III of Hungary) wrote that a castle already stood here when the Hungarians first occupied the area. The castle was probably a 9th century Frankish (Franks) fortress. The castles of Veszprém, Esztergom and Székesfehérvár, were the earliest Hungarian stone castles, which had already been built during the reign of High Prince Géza (Geza), a time when motte castles were much more common. In 1991, his remains were repatriated to Esztergom by the newly democratically elected government and buried in the basilica (Esztergom Basilica) there. The Mindszenty Museum in Esztergom is dedicated to the life of the churchman. A commemorative statue of Cardinal Mindszenty stands at St. Ladislaus Church in New Brunswick (New Brunswick, New Jersey), New Jersey, U.S. (United States). He is also remembered in Chile, with a memorial in the same park (Parque Bustamante) in which a monument to the martyrs of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution stands. The Bosnian Bishop had the permission from the Pope to raise arms since 1360 and the Hungarian King was to supply them. In 1363, the Hungarian King attempted a double invasion of Tvrtko's Bosnia to resolve Tvrtko from his office. The first and primary target was the city of Soko (Soko, Bosnia and Herzegovina) on Pliva. Tvrtko's Duke Vukac Hrvatinić led a three-day defence against the siege of the city from 8 to 10 July. The Hungarian Palatine Nikola Kont (Nikola Kont Orahovički (Iločki)) was sent later to renew the invasion. He attacked Srebrenik in Usora (Usora (region)). The Hungarians suffered heavy losses and someone even stole the royal seal from its guardian the Archbishop of Esztergom from the Hungarian camp. After this triumph, by 1364 Tvrtko called himself Ban of All Bosnia ''by the mercy of God'' instead of ''by the mercy of the Hungarian King''. The Republic of Venetia, Hungary's old enemy nominated Tvrtko as its honorary citizen. The war strengthened the Bosnian nobility. Prince Sanko Miltenović and the Dabišić brothers have stopped recognizing the Ban's supreme rule and numerous Venetian (Republic of Venice) and Ragusan (Republic of Ragusa) trade caravans have been raided by the lesser nobility. Anarchy ruled in Tvrtko's Bosnia. One version of the origin of the crown is written by bishop Hartvik (between 1095–1116), in which the "Pope" has sent King Stephen I "his blessings and a crown". The basis for this belief is a biography by bishop Hartvik written around 1100-1110 at the request of King Könyves Kálmán. According to "Hartvik’s legend", St Stephen sent Archbishop Astrik of Esztergom to Rome to ask for or require (both are possible from original Latin script) a crown from the "Pope", but it does not tell the name of the Pope. No matter how much Astrik hurried, the Polish (Poland) prince, Mieszko I (Mieszko I of Poland)'s envoy was quicker, and the crown was prepared for the future Polish king. The Pope had seen a dream during the night, seeing the angel of the Lord telling him there will be another envoy from another nation, asking for a crown for their own king. The angel told the Pope: "There will be another envoy from an unknown folk, who will ask for or require a crown, too, please give the crown to them, as they deserve it". The next day Astrik approached the Pope so he gave the crown to him. "Hartvik’s legend" appeared in the liturgical books and breviaries in Hungary around 1200, recalling the then-existing Pope, Pope Sylvester II. Consequently the story of how the crown had been sent by Pope Sylvester II spread throughout the Christian world, so in 1613, crown guard Péter Révai states that the entire crown was given to St Stephen by Pope Sylvester II. However, this legend can be considered biased, as Mieszko I was not living at the same time as either St. Stephen I or Pope Sylvester II. Also, in the "Greater Legend" of St Stephen, written around the time he was canonised (1083), we learn only that "in the fifth year after the death of his father (...) they brought a Papal letter of blessings (...) and the Lord’s favoured one, Stephen, was chosen to be king, and was anointed with oil and fortunately crowned with the diadem of royal honour". This legend clearly lacks the information that the crown was from Rome. Moreover, there are no documents found in Vatican City on the granting of the crown, even though the Vatican has a clear interest in handing over the crown from Rome, as it is representing dominance over the Kingdom of Hungary. * 1991: Car production started in Korea through technical ties with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Heavy Machinery Ltd and Cappuccino (Suzuki Cappuccino) 2-seater marketed. * 1993: Passenger car production sales began at Suzuki Egypt S.A.E., opening ceremony for new car production plant held at Magyar Suzuki Corp.

His father was Michael (Mihály), Duke between Morava (Morava (river)) (March) and Esztergom (Hron or Gran) (– ca 978 or bef. 997) and his mother was Michael's wife Adelajda of Poland (– aft. 997), daughter or sister of Mieszko I of Poland. His brother was Ladislaus the Bald. He was a cousin of Stephen I of Hungary. He took part in a conspiracy aimed at murdering king Stephen (Stephen I of Hungary). As a result of the failed assassination attempt, he was excluded from the royal succession in favour of Peter Orseolo (Peter Urseolo of Hungary). As punishment for his treason, Vazul had his eyes gouged out at Nitra Castle and molten lead poured in his ears and his sons were exiled. Denis Sinor, History of Hungary (London: George Allen and Unwin Ltd., 1959) 41. In the meantime, in 1538, the Ottoman Empire invaded Moldavia. In 1541, another campaign in Hungary took Buda and Pest (Pest (city)) (which today together form the Hungarian capital Budapest) with a largely bloodless trick: after concluding peace talks with an agreement, troops stormed the open gates of Buda in the night. In retaliation for a failed Austrian counter-attack in 1542, the conquest of the western half of central Hungary was finished in the 1543 campaign that took both the most important royal ex-capital, Székesfehérvár, and the ex-seat of the cardinal, Esztergom. However, the army of 35–40,000 men was not enough for Suleiman (Suleiman the Magnificent) to mount another attack on Vienna. A temporary truce was signed between the Habsburg and Ottoman Empires in 1547, which was soon disregarded by the Habsburgs. thumb 200px The Ottoman campaign in Hungary in 1566, Crimean Tatars as vanguard (File:Szigetvar 1566.jpg) left thumb 410px Hungarian King Ladislaus I of Hungary (File:Ladislaus (left) Cuman (right).jpg) (left) fighting with a Cuman Warrior (right) Cumania was also preserved as part of the Roman Catholic ecclesiastical structure with a "Diocese of Cumania" existing until 1523 in what is now Romania, long after the Cumans ceased to be a distinct group in the area. At Milcov, years earlier, in 1227, the Cuman warlord Bortz accepted Catholic Christianity from missionary Dominican (Dominican Order) monks. Pope Gregory IX heard about the mass conversion of the Cumans, and on 1 July 1227 empowered Robert, Archbishop of Esztergom, to represent him to Cumania and in neighbouring Land of the Brodnici. Teodoric, the bishop of this new diocese, became the guardian of the Dominican Order in the Kingdom of Hungary. The letter of Pope Gregory the IXth: Capitals The capital of the county was the Esztergom Castle and the town of Esztergom, then from 1543 onwards - when the territory became part of the Ottoman Empire - the capital was outside the county (e. g. 1605-1663 in Érsekújvár), and finally from 1714 onwards the capital was the town of Esztergom. History A predecessor of the county existed as early as in the 9th century, when Esztergom (called ''Ostrihom'' at that time) was one of the most important castles of Great Moravia. The Esztergom county as a comitatus (Comitatus (Kingdom of Hungary)) arose at the end of the 10th century as one of the first comitatus of the Kingdom of Hungary. The county had a special status in that since 1270 its heads were at the same time the archbishops of Esztergom. production 2004–2010 2004–2011 (India) 2010–present (Pakistan) assembly China: Chongqing Hungary: Esztergom India: Manesar Indonesia: Bekasi WikiPedia:Esztergom Commons:Category:Esztergom

Guards Tank Army 4th Guards Army . A heavy battle ensued, with the ''Wiking'' and the ''Totenkopf'' seeing many of the Red Army tanks destroyed. In three days, they had driven 45 kilometres over rugged terrain, over half the distance from their start point to Budapest. The Soviets maneuvered forces to block the advance, and they barely managed to halt the advance at Bicske, only 28 kilometres from Budapest. Gille pulled the ''Wiking'' out of the line and moved it to the south of Esztergom, near the Danube bend.

These structures, along with the contemporary buildings, were destroyed in the siege of 1683 (Great Turkish War) resulting in the liberation of Esztergom - though some Turkish buildings prevailed up to the beginning of the 18th century.

His son, Vajk, who was later called Saint Stephen of Hungary, was born in his palace built on the Roman castrum on the Várhegy (Castle Hill) around 969-975. In 973, Esztergom served as the starting point of an important historical event. During Easter of that year, Géza sent a committee to the international

. The Archbishop greatly enlarged his collection in the following years. His most significant purchase was that of the ''Bertinelli collection'' in Rome in 1878, when the Museum acquired sixty, mainly Italian Renaissance paintings. Further important acquisitions were the wooden sculptures and works of applied art bought in 1884 from the ''Schnütgen Collection (Schnütgen Museum)'' in Cologne. After 1882, the enlarged collection was transferred to the second floor of the newly rebuilt Primate’s

) is a 298 km long left tributary of the Danube and the second longest river in Slovakia. It flows from its source located in the Low Tatra mountains (under Kráľova hoľa) through central and southern Slovakia, pouring into the Danube near Štúrovo and Esztergom. Major cities and towns situated on the Hron are Brezno, Banská Bystrica, Sliač, Zvolen, Žiar nad Hronom, Žarnovica, Nová Baňa, Tlmače, Levice, Želiezovce, and Štúrovo. Besides Saint-Gilles-du-Gard, nineteen other cities bear his name. Cities that possess relics of St. Giles include Saint-Gilles, Toulouse and a multitude of other French cities, Antwerp, Brugge and Tournai in Belgium, Cologne and Bamberg in Germany, Rome and Bologna in Italy, Prague in Czech Republic, and Esztergom in Hungary. The lay Community of Sant'Egidio is named after his church in Rome, Sant'Egidio (Sant'Egidio (church)). Giles is also the patron saint of Edinburgh, Scotland, where St. Giles' Cathedral is a prominent landmark. He was sent for convalescence to a military hospital in Budapest, but was later transferred to Esztergom, where he continued to take photographs. These included a self-portrait for a competition in the magazine ''Borsszem Jankó''. His most famous piece of this period was "Underwater Swimmer, Esztergom, 1917", the only surviving work of a series of a swimmer whose image is distorted by the water.
